Hi all can I join!?

New to the forum have been lurking a bit while i've been waiting for parts to arrive.

The goodies


Unpacked


And dry prelim testing


Just making sure everything is running OK and no DOA's then I'll be going to water and some tasty other mods. Cable management is horrible as its all coming out again in a couple of weeks.

System is
3770k
Asus Z77 Sabertooth
Corsair Dominator Platinum Ram
EVGA GTX 670 4gb SuperClocked
Coolermaster Silent Hybrid Pro 850
Most importantly a Black Pearl Refine R4 smile.gif

I've been out of the game a long time, hopefully this will work OK.

I would like to post this for anyone that ever needs to, considering after months of research I found no answer...

THE FRACTAL DESIGNS DEFINE MINI HAS ENOUGH ROOM FOR AN ASUS GTX570 WITH ITS MASSIVE DirectCU II THAT TAKES UP A WHOPPING 3 SLOTS. D

Just barely fits (less than a quarter of an inch) but it fits.

Hi all,

I'm about to build a new gaming rig using the Fractal R4. I'm going with the non-windowed version so that I'll have the option of a side fan.

I have one question before I finalize my order, which is whether a side fan will fit if I'm using the Hyper 212 Evo? I'm pretty sure others have done this but the FD website makes me worry that a tall heatsink like the Evo would prohibit the use of a side fan (in which case I should be getting a different heat sink, or ordering the windowed version).

Thanks in advance for any replies! smile.gif

I don't have an air cooling solution, but the side panel sits more in line with where your GPU's would be so clearance for your 212 should not be much of a problem. Maybe someone with a 212 can actually confirm that though...

I don't have a build log! Everytime I build a pc I always end up forgetting then remembering too late.

I bought a 13 7/8 x 5 7/8 piece of 1/8 clear acrylic which fit up to the front perfectly then I just laid the acrylic over the fans. Used a ruler to draw a line from one center of the fan to the other then I got a 4 1/8 hole saw to drill the hole for the acrylic. After that I sprayed it with rustoleum Satin Black which matches the front perfectly in person.

Here is some pictures of it put together. Im just running prime 95 right now to overclock it but the case mod isn't not done yet. I'm still drying the piece of acrylic that hides my drivebay and powersupply that I just spray painted. Also I'm waiting on another piece of acrylic to come in on tuesday so I can mod the side panel for a window mod. Also I'm waiting on some sleeves so I can sleeve my power supply correctly and not use extensions to lessen the wires in the case. This time Im just sleeving them plain black so that I can change the fluid easier in my WC setup and still match lol. This will be my first sleeving so hopefully everything goes as plan and I don't mess anything up
